So I have a Alpine SWR-1242D Subwoofer, also known as a Alpine Type-R 12" Subwoofer with Dual 4-Ohm Voice Coils. I know that since the subwoofer is a DVC 4-Ohm, I can run it in 2-Ohm or 8-Ohm configurations. I was intending to run it at 2-Ohms. Here is my issue, I cannot find a amp which is rated for around 500 Watts RMS. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations. I was trying to get one as cheap as possible. I had looked at the Planet Audio AC1500.1M Anarchy 1500 Watt, but then I was not sure if there was a way to lower the watt output of that. Also, this is for a hobby project, so I'm trying to keep it as cheap as realistically possible.
Thanks for your suggestions!
